Mike Sketch Series: Mike with Hands on his Face 1991

I copied this image from a grainy photo I took of my brother Mike.  The facial expression I captured was not the one that I caught in the photo. That I made the same error in a previous sketch makes me curious about what this says about me as an artist. In my self portrait series, I became adept at accurately portraying my own image. There may be something inside me rebelling against directly transcribing Mike”s image from his photo.
